Music video review: MONDO GROSSO / ラビリンス

There's something so powerful and romantic about this video. The cinematography is shot well with a clear vision of beginning to end. I admire and wish I could dance so freely as the woman in the video does; so comfortably in city streets as if she's in her home like a child at play. Similarly, [...]

note: c (see) shadow puppetry

musical notes flutter across see-through paper. their movements offbeat like magic shadow puppetry dance in wonder about morning clouds. drift and sway, always. never knowing if they're heard. never knowing if they're seen.   ------- I found a video that conveys this sentiment in this poem. I wrote the poem first and then found the [...]

love heals

I created this paint image the same night I made the "smooth colors" entry a post earlier. It's hard to imagine that 2018 is coming.

living peacefully

I wanted to make a digital scrapbook-type image. draft one draft two The above reads: We drove by these creatures of the earth. We saw green grass and blue skies. The trees and grass were of abundance. No longer did our car feel like we were in a sea of others. We were the minority. [...]

flowers through a broken camera

The blurriness reveals nothing to me. Standing in the middle of the field of flowers, taking photographs with a broken camera, my life was meaningful in ways I can't understand anymore. But I know I was free. I was alone. I was with a full heart of optimism and hope. And I was loved. That [...]
